It’s about time for Swedish root rock figureheads SIENA ROOT to finally release their highly-anticipated eighth studio album, “Revelation” on February 24th, 2023 through Atomic Fire Records and with “Keeper Of The Flame,” the band have launched yet another sonic ambassador of the record today. Underlining the album’s wide-ranging musical spectrum, the passionate song can be checked out alongside visuals – created by Gabriel Management – over on Youtube. SIENA ROOT will also be returning to European stages in order to present their new material live this spring: after a show at iconic, Rockpalast-powered Crossroads Festival (Bonn, DE @ Harmonie) had been announced for March 17th a few weeks ago, the quartet are now pleased to add a few warm-up gigs leading the way to the aforementioned festival appearance to their itinerary. All current dates (incl. two album release shows in the group’s home country) can be found below!

The band add, “‘Keeper Of The Flame’ is a modern rock classic, stuffed with powerful vocals, rock organ and bluesy guitar licks, guided by an ever-present, soulful golden thread. This ballad explores the conflict between requited attraction and heartbreak: starting off slowly with Rhodes piano and vocals that tug at your heartstrings to only evolve into a fully blown rock track towards the end.”

Fittingly titled “Revelation,” that’s exactly what the album has become: the group’s most versatile offering in their career long-spanning career, guiding listeners through a real journey instead of simply stringing together song after song. The eleven new tracks were recorded analogously once again at Silence Studio (Koppom, SE) and Root Rock Studios (Stockholm, SE) where they were also mixed before getting mastered at Stockholm‘s Cutting Room.

Founded in the late ’90s, SIENA ROOT have constantly been working on something new, ever-changing their approach and experimenting a lot – not only to keep their music fresh for fans but especially to challenge themselves. An open secret and one of the main reasons for the group being relevant as ever after all these years. Besides touring with acts such as DEEP PURPLE and DEWOLFF, the quartet — longtime/founding members Love Forsberg (drums) and Sam Riffer (bass), completed by guitarist Johan Borgström and multi-talent Zubaida Solid (vocals, keys) — have always been bringing their highly infectious performance to the stages of the world that gained them a very own load of die-hard fans around the globe.
